Symptoms of Sports Injuries

When your body becomes injured because of sports or training, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Muscle pains
  • Inflammation
  • Swelling
  • Pinched nerves
  • Burning, dull pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms

Different Types of Sports Injuries

Injuries may differ depending on the type of sports and activities you participate in. Some  common sports injuries are:

Neck injuries like whiplash may occur when the neck is quickly forced backward or forward in a “whipping” motion. Participating in contact sports raises your risk of whiplash, so approach these activities with extra care. Damage to the spine may cause inflammation, resulting in pain and a limited range of motion. Dr. Taylor utilizes careful and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore mobility to the neck and reduce pain.

Pinched nerves from a sports injury can be painful. Dr. Taylor treats this type of issue with chiropractic adjustments to the spine. This relieves pressure, consequently alleviating pain and restoring physical functionality.

There is no need to suffer through the pain of sport injuries. Schedule an appointment today with Southwest Spine & Rehab and get back to your active and pain-free life.
